Measuring Your Ute Tray
Before you order your rubber ute matting, you'll need to measure your ute tray accurately, remember that it's sold by the metre, with a standard width of 1830mm. Here's how to measure:
- Start by measuring the width of your ute tray. Ovesco's matting is designed to be 1830mm wide, making it an ideal fit for both aluminum and steel ute trays.
- Measure the length of your tray from the front to the back, ensuring you cover the entire surface.
- Note any irregularities or protrusions in your tray, as you may need to trim the matting to fit around them.
Note: Please be aware that if you purchase cut lengths of the matting, Ovesco may not be able to accept your order as a return due to the custom nature of these cuts. To avoid any confusion or potential issues, we recommend contacting Ovesco before making your purchase if you're unsure about the required length for your project. If your project requires a substantial amount of matting, consider our full rolls, which are 10 metres in length. This option can be a cost-effective solution for larger applications.
Once you have your matting, it's time to install it. Here's how to do it easily:
- Lay the matting flat in your ute tray, ensuring it covers the entire surface.
- Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the matting to fit your tray's dimensions. Take your time and make precise cuts.
- If you encounter irregularities or protrusions, use your knife to make necessary cutouts or adjustments to ensure a snug fit.
- Ensure that the matting sits flat and securely in your tray, without any wrinkles or overhanging edges.
